validation list drop down box, how do I bring in text commands
I have a reference set in excel that is two columns. The first column lists
functions in text (i.e. AVERAGE, COUNT, COUNTA, MAX, MIN....). The second
column lists the corresponding function number (i.e. AVG = 1, COUNT =2....).
I made a drop down box using data, validation, list so that the function
numbers appear in a row. The row below I put in subtotal(grab command from
drop down, data set to calc). I can't figure out how to return the TEXT from
my columns above, rather than function number. I want my drop down to have
AVERAGE, not 1.

You could go to Inquiry>Purchasing>Transactions by Document, put your check

scrolling window zoom back on the 'Unapplied Amount' field. Viola! the
documents paid by the selected payment are listed. Unfortunately there isn't

This function is in a workbook with 2 sheets. It _almost_ works
perfectly. These "C" columns in two different sheets
'2005-2006'!C:C,'2004-2005'!C:C, contain names of people. The D column
in one of the sheets - '2004-2005'!D:D - contains a date associated
with the person's name from the C column of 2004-2005 sheet.
This formula is in the "D" column of Sheet 2005-2006.

Is there a way to return the cell reference, or column/row coordinates,
of a cell within an array or table by providing lookup criteria?
Perhaps something like this:
For a table of value in A1:E10
F1: (the value to find)
Note: Commit that array formula by holding down the [Ctrl][Shift] keys and
That formula returns the address of the 1st cell containing the value in F1,
or #VALUE! if there is no match.
Am I on the right track here?
"Travis" ...Advanced Lookups
Is there any way to make an advanced lookup the default lookup? so you don't
have to always choose that option when doing a lookup?
Thanks for any help.
Advanced lookups ARE the default unless you've done something to make it now
so. There isn't any way to "choose" the option when doing a lookup that I
know of unless you have some type of customization (easy to do) that would
give the user an option.

I have data that I input in from Column A to F [cells 1-
50]. In column G I have the total of these rows.
How can I produce a custom filter on column G that works
from a drop down that will show 3 things - <500, 500-999
and more than 999?
The cells with numbers not required will remain there but
will not show any value.
I can do it via custom filter but have to set it every
time and it does not allow more than 2 filters.
Thanks as usual,
You could insert another column into the table. For example, in cell H1,
enter the heading: Group
In cell H2, enter the formula:

I am trying to label my bank info that I import into Excel. I have a column with the charge amount and a column with the recipient. I think a lookup table would work for this, but I need to have it check for wildcards. For example, the grocery chain is numbered here, so one might be GROCER 5454 and one may be GROCER 8724, so I need the function to look for GROCER*, right?
Also, if it does not fit any category, how can I get it to use "Other"? Do I make that one just "*"?
Mine is not working very well. Maybe my syntax is wrong.
